RIYADH: Saudi Arabia announced 327 new cases of coronavirus on Wednesday bringing the total number of cases in the Kingdom to 2,932.

The figure for the number of coronavirus cases recorded on April 7 include the 190 people who were reported as having the virus at midday on Tuesday, and a further 137 people who tested positive after midday.

In total, 631 coronavirus patients have recovered.

There have been 41 deaths from the virus in the Kingdom so far.

Meanwhile, the Saudi Ministry of Health has launched a new app aimed at monitoring the conditions of people suspected of having the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The Tatamman (meaning, rest assured) app will allow individuals who are self-isolating or in quarantine to access up-to-date advice and information on the virus and their health status.

Ministry spokesman, Dr. Mohammed Al-Abd Al-Aly, said: “It (the app) is for those who have the symptoms, or recently returned to Saudi Arabia, those who have been in direct contact with a positive case, as well as those currently under home quarantine as instructed by the ministry.”
